Judging Others

Hey Guys!!!!

I remember when I was small, I told something bad about somebody to my dad, I have never seen him so stern before or after that incident. He sat up straight and looked directly at me and said, "This will be the first and the last time, you will speak ill of others, never ever judge others. When you make a mistake and the world around you point at you, and say, you are not a correct person, how would you feel?  Do you want that?"

"No Dad, I wouldn't want that. I am sorry. I didn't know." This happened when I was 7 yrs old. When I heard my dad say so strongly and the way he told me, believe it or not I really felt fear creep through my very core.

That was an eye opener, From that very day, I make sure that I consciously would never speak ill of others and I try to stop if others speak as such. Whenever I come to that situation, that fear just wakes up within - shaking the young Meena from within, to say, "Shut up Meena."

Its not our place to criticise others, they might have done whatever they did, hoping it is correct, so we accept it as correct for them. If they have done wrong, then it is their problem, they will take care of it. Don't force our ethics on others.

 Just enjoy life, people and the place you are around, no matter how wrong or right it is. Hope you would do right with you.

Take care.
